On Thursday October 8, 2015, the Jamaica National Building Society will host the JN Outlook for the Future public forum at the New York Hilton Midtown under the theme “ Developing Successful Jamaican Businesses in a Challenging Economy”.
The Forum will provide practical information on developing and sustaining businesses in Jamaica against the background of a challenging, but improving, economic framework.
Two leading Jamaican private sector leaders: William Mahfood, President of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica and Chairman of Wisynco Group Limited; and Glenford “Glen” Christian, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Cari-Med and Kirk Distributors Limited, will present on how they established successful companies; what makes the Jamaican economy conducive for business investment, and share perspectives on moving the Jamaican economy forward.
The Outlook for the Future series, organised by the Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS), has been held in the USA, Canada and the United Kingdom since 2003. The meetings have successfully brought together representatives of successive administrations and key leaders overseas to engage in frank, open discussions about issues of national importance to Jamaicans locally and in the Diaspora. In addition, the forums provide an environment in which investors can network and explore opportunities for investment in Jamaica.
